Remote Broadcast Pregame Show
Since Aggie Radio became an FM station, its listenership, music selection, shows, music selection and capabilities have increased substantially.
Ethan Chadwick, Evan Hall, J.D. Herndon, Jaden Johnson and Jason Walker took part in the station’s first remote broadcast on Saturday, February 4. They provided a live, pregame show commentary for the women’s basketball game against Boise State.
Chadwick said he was motivated to host remote broadcasts for better exposure and atmosphere when reporting and commentating.
“Remote broadcasts are a unique opportunity for exposure for Aggie Radio,” he said.
Chadwick hosted the broadcast while Hall, Johnson and Walker helped on air. Herndon worked from the Taggart Student Center studio helping with music and ensuring the broadcast ran smoothly.
Johnson said the remote broadcast would be a good way to advertise for Aggie Radio. He said it would help for people to hear live broadcasts directly from the stadium.
“I’ve seen and heard a ton of positive feedback,” he said. “I was told specifically by a few different people that they thought it was cool for us to actually be there on the arena concourse."
Herndon said he was interested in doing the live broadcast because of all the events that happen at the university. He also wanted to familiarize himself with the broadcast equipment and phone feature.
“It’s just exciting for KBLU-LP Logan to continue to grow and expand its capabilities,” Herndon said. “I’d like to continue to seek out other events that could be live broadcast.”
Chadwick said he hoped to continue using the live broadcasts for sports play-by-plays. Like Herndon, Chadwick hopes to utilize live remote broadcasts for events outside of sports.
Johnson said the possibilities for live remote broadcasts are limitless.
“The possibilities are really endless,” Johnson said. “I hope that all of USU student media really takes advantage of this new ability.”
